nearvideo McConnell expresses frustration with the Senate delay on the border funding bill
Tensions run high in Congress, after the house passes a $4.5 B bill, the reports in front of a veto threat from President Trump, Mike Emanuel.
The Senate on Wednesday not to advance the House version of the $4.5 billion bill financing of a vote on its own, multi-party cross-action to set up the measures against the escalating humanitarian crisis on the southern border — later in the day.
The measure was defeated, with only 37 senators to support and 55 combat. It needed 60 votes to pass.
The expectation is that the Senate would consist of version of the measure, the chamber. A vote on this law was design to come later in the afternoon and put pressure on the house to declare that version instead.

Both chambers are scrambling to the funding went, and sent to the President’s Desk before the 4. July Summer Break. The Democrat-controlled house passed its version of the legislation on Tuesday night that included, what is to stop supporters as “guard rails” to, the financing will be used for immigration enforcement.
The funding for immigration customs and Enforcement (ICE) custody account of beds and the Pentagon was not in support of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the enforcement part of the house, while the latter and some ICE was funding in the Senate version.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., as the house bill, “go nowhere proposal with poison pill riders, which the President has indicated he would veto.” filled The White house had to say a warning was issued on Monday, when the President says veto the measure if it landed on his Desk, that it under-funds necessary departments and the “Directive contains provisions which would our country less safe.”
“You had to drag your bill way on the left side of the support of most Democrats deserve said,” McConnell. “As a result, the house does not have much progress they actually make a law, the more resistance theatre.”
Should be handed over to the Senate and send their own version to the house, it is unclear whether it has the votes to pass the house. Many house progressives, four of them voted against the House version, would probably be against the Senate version over concerns that it is not doing enough to stop the Trump administration’s immigration policy.
Rep. Veronica Escobar, D-Texas, told Fox News that “the guidelines must be to stop it”, the President of the use for enforcement.
“[Trump] is an unreliable President. He is [the Fund] in a shameful manner…give him a blank check is dangerous,” she said.

Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-NY, Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., and Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., voted against the house measure on Tuesday, and that number would likely swell if the Senate version before the house.
But House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., and others have claimed, you would accept, if the Senate, which means it’s possible the Senate could pass the bill and then the house to force the hand of the clock ticking down, before the recess.
The Congress back-and-forth comes in the midst of the fresh control over the poor conditions at the border, as hundreds of thousands of migrants try and cross the border every month. A picture of a drowned father and his daughter, released late Tuesday, and new reports of crowded and unsanitary conditions at the borders to the prisons, increasing the pressure on the Congress to grant the financing.
Members could also try the time runs out, mix the two bills together in the Committee, unless you move the break. To understand legislators on both sides of the aisle, to leave it to be a problem for the Congress, a break room, hotel booking, without which it produced an invoice for Trump to sign it.
